A word from Re Sette
A royal feast awaits you at Re Sette, transporting guests to another era with exquisite design and elegant Southern Mediterranean cuisine. Downstairs, the 1,800-square-foot restaurant offers seating in an intimate dining room, lounge and bar. Guests enjoy a grand entrance, with a vaulted ceiling and long mahogany bar that features an expansive menu of grappa, the favored drink of Italian kings. The designs regal influences are seen throughout and conjure an opulent time: jewel-toned tapestry-covered chairs dimly lit ornate candelabras and deep Naugahyde banquettes against brick red textured walls.

    This is the fourth time I have been to Re Sette within the past six months and each time has been a wonderful experience. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. The food is wonderful from the Calamari to the Tiramisu and everything in between. If I lived in the area this would be my go to place.

    The food was just ok. It smelled fantastic but the taste was not great. The service was not very good. From the waiter to the bar tender not being able to make a virgin drink. The hostess was very nice and accommodating.

    I had a Groupon for this restaurant and was thrilled with its location in the Theatre district. I thought we would be treated like second-class citizens but the service was prompt and courteous. Our waiter also had great recommendations and even helped us to maximize our Groupon as it was a deal for four and we were a party of three. The appetizers and entrees were delicious but we were too full to try any desserts! Great dining choice.

    We bought a groupon to go to ReSette. We don't use groupons very often, but we were going with friends, knew we would order more that the groupon, and figured, why not save a little money? The food, and the service were outstanding. I had the tuna tartare, which was excellent, but after I tasted my husband's PEI mussels, I realized that I should have ordered them, too. Fresh, delicious, and with a fradiavlo sauce that was incredible. Dinner was delicious, too. My husband had the filet. It was tender, tasty and perfectly medium rare. Two of us had the pork chop milanese. It was incredible, tasty, and the salad the it was topped with made it so refreshing. Our waiter was amazing. No one made us feel bad about the groupon. Excellent!

    My husband and I met here for dinner. This cozy restaurant is staffed with attentive and professional waitstaff. Our waiter was very well-versed on the menu and the individual components of each dish. He did mind giving us his recommendations on what he thought were the best dishes and we gladly took his information. I found this place on GroupOn for a steal and was glad that I took the opportunity to buy this offer when it was available as I found out from the table next to me it sold out when they tried to obtain this deal for themselves:-) The fried calamari was delicious we enjoyed a fish and a shrimp dish and topped it off with a wonderful dessert that we shared. We will visit this place again if we're in the neighborhood.

    The food at Re Sette is exceptional and well-priced, especially if you use the dinner Groupon for 2 or 4. I have been to the restaurant many times and went back for a special birthday celebration. I would have given this restaurant an outstanding review, however, we were seated across from a table of 7 women and 1 man who were so loud we couldn't hear ourselves above their screaming and cackling. It made for a most unpleasant dining experience. The staff was well aware of it and did nothing to ask them to keep it down -- on behalf of the other diners since the ceiling is very low in the restaurant.

    ReSette is one of my fav go to spots! went to celebrate a birthday. The food always on point, consistent and the service is always good. You cannot go wrong with anything on this menu! The only disappointing thing is that they don't advertise that they have a pre-fixed menu and they don't offer it to you unless you ask. This is misleading and that practice needs to stop. Either they are going to offer the special menu or not, but hiding it isn't cool. STILL I love this place!

    Pastas and sauces are fresh. The dishes were creative and cooked to perfection. The lobster ravioli was tasty and the shrimp was succulent. I tried bites of several dishes and was impressed with all of them. Dessert was disappointing. The tiramisu is homemade, but bland. As someone who makes an outrageous tiramisu with marscapone, I found this one to be nothing special. As it is, I never eat anyone else's, but my son wanted to try someone else's. He won't be doing that again. Chocolate crunch cake was ok. I found the desserts to be run of the mill and not worth the $9. Other than that, it was good.

    My friend and I had a Groupon for this restaurant and she had been here before and loved it. The food was very good. We had the fried calamari as an appetizer and there were so many it could have been a dinner for one person. They were delicious. I had the salmon which was pretty good and my friend had the apple-pear-gorgonzola ravioli which were incredible. Good wine. Very nice ambience--tastefully decorated, comfortable seating, quiet and intimate. Delightful experience!

    I had bought this Groupon deal, which includes appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 house wines, for over $50. And when the bill came I still owed them $60 after the groupon voucher. The only extra thing I had was a dessert. It's not about the money but it's about my expectations with the food. It was horrible! I would never ever come back. I wanted my girlfriend to have a good time but it was ruined. If the food was good, I wouldn't care so much about the price but I think paying over $60/person is completely unacceptable.

    On a beautiful Saturday with every tourist in NYC converging on Times Square, Re Sette on West 45th St. offered a cozy, calming respite. The service is attentive and down-to-earth. You never feel rushed but you do get out on time for a show. The food ranges from perfectly decent to very good Italian, taken from a range of Southern and Sicilian dishes. Prices are moderate ($20-$30 entrees) and most theaters are a 10 minute walk away. Great proximity to Bryant Park and Fifth Avenue. Nice little bar up front. Dress is neatly casual (not slobby).

    Tasty italian cuisine, unfortunately staff seems too be bothered by the presence of customers. Visited on a Saturday night, perhaps they are less rushed on week days? Picked the place for the chicken limoncello from the internet menu, but was not available anymore, had been taken off the menu. Overall a good place to eat but would not visit again.

    The service was spectacular. Two people in our party had the spicy seafood special, very good. Another person had the chicken special with mozzarella and mushrooms, very good. I had the pork chop on the bone of the menu, unfortunately I didn't not pay attention to the whole description but it was breaded--milanese style--I ate it all but would never order it again. For appetizers we had the portobello mushroom, calamari, beet/goat salad and all were very good. And I close with the fact that the service was spectacular. It is worth a visit but it is not for foodies.
